PIR Insulation Board is one of the most efficient insulation material used in construction. This product is an improvement of previously used PUR boards (polyurethane), typically produced as a foam and used as rigid thermal insulation. This type of insulation offer many advantages when compared with other traditional insulating materials, and over its useful life will save 80 times more energy than was used to make it. Most popular type of PIR insulation board comprises a rigid PIR insulation core sandwiched between two high performance aluminium foil facings to create a tough, durable, light weight insulation board that performs whilst reducing the overall cost to build.
There are also other types of PIR insuation boards, for example, for flat roofs it can have plywood bonded on one side, or glass tissue or plasterboard bonded to it for wall applications. The need to replace the insulation is highly unlikely due to its rigidity, durability and excellent compressive strength. PIR insulation boards require approximately half the thickness of traditional forms of insulation to meet the same level of thermal performance. They achieve low R-values, as low as just 0.021W/mK. It is seen as greatest potential for energy saving today. PIR insulation boards will not rot, sag or decay and will therefore continue to deliver designed insulation values throughout the lifetime of the building.
The insulation core and facings resist attack by mould and microbial growth. They have a fibre free insulation core, and therefore are non-irritant. It is an environment friendly material. Its low weight also lends itself to modern methods of construction and lighter supporting structures. They are easy to handle and transport, making installation much easier and quicker than traditional insulants.
